Hi guys...time again to start planning our Boxbreakers High End FB Group Break for March. I am posting the team assignments that I am aware of so if you participated last month but want to add, drop, or change a team please let me know asap so I can keep the list accurate.

The cost remains the same at $115 to claim a team and of course you get every card pulled from your team. We will also allow a paid-draft system to anyone with a fully paid slot in where you can claim an additional team (or more) for a vastly discounted cost of $35 per team. This is an optional draft so you can decide when it's your turn to select an open team (and pay the fee) or simply pass. This system helps us defer some of the cost of the two cases so our starting team fee is more affordable. All boxes will broke on Youtube.

The final product list depends on the final number of participants but please offer your suggestions here. So far some of the candidates are;

2008 National Treasures Case (3 boxes)
2007 National Treasures Case (6 boxes)
2006 National Treasures (1 Box)
2007 Leaf Limited (2 boxes)

Cost per team: $115
Payment deadline: March 20th
Break Date: March 28th

Participant List:

49ers - MWS ------------------------------ PAID
Bears - Kiansdad ------------------------- PAID
Bengals - Crpalmi ------------------------------- DRAFT PAID
Bills - Takeobeavis ------------------------ PAID

I would like to suggest we stay away from the 08 national treasures until it is cheaper. I know the bears did well, but I don't think all the hits even equaled the cost of one box. At 400 hundred a box even a nice matt ryan would have a hard time bringing 400. 07 at 250 is a much better deal and would allow us more opportunity to see some really nice hits, even if it is a AP. And I know are goal is not to break even but it would be nice to see more people get hits and maybe have a couple get ahead. This is the first month I actually got something, didnt break even, but am happy cause I would never pay to break a box myself.

Thanks for all your effort Chris. And if you want to drop AP, I mean the Vikings I will be happy to pick them up.


I do not need base or anything with Vick on it, he is a scum bag.

I would actually agree with you but do feel strongly that we need an 08 product in the mix. Perhaps we can do an 06NT - 07NT - 08Ultimate mix or something similiar?

The only thing I worry about with the 06 product is that the closer we get to the release of 2009 product, the closer we get to expired redemptions from 2006. sad.gif

I would prefer to stay with as much 2007 and 2008 product as we can.


That said, I dont know if 08 Ultimate is any better value at $80- $90 for one hit then NT at $400 for 6 hits.

I will be back with the cowboys.

I think we need to pick up the 08NT debate closer to the break, last month the case price went from 1080 to 1234.99 just a few days before the boxes where ordered.

I saw two cases (30 packs) of 08 ultimate opened on youtube and one box was heavy on cowboys and the other was heavy on dolphins. Half the hits will also be 4-team multis's(boring 1 colors at that) and the case hit is on card auto on a 1997 throw back card. I don't think 08 ultimate is a good set for a group break.


06NT already has expired redemption's so i think we should focus on 07NT untill 9-30-09 when its redemption's expire.

I haven't seen much football premier opened, just baseball, so i'm going to go look into what comes out of there. I worry about guaranteed bad slots, like the base card, manufactured patch and rookie autos no on wants making it so that in reality we only get 3-4 hits per pack.

Exquisite comes out tomorrow but at the $500 price, I think a $400 08NT will be a better deal.

I'll go find those 08 ultimate videos and post them so you can see what i'm saying. I went to the yanks vs team usa today and want to see how the pics came out so I get to it in a few hours.

What about a case of Triple Threads?

I'd just like to stay as far away from 07 Leaf Limited as possible. I personally like 06 NT better than 07 regardless of the expired redemptions, but that's just me.

There are not enough hits for the price in triple treads, the cards are really nice but in a group break to many people get nothing, that was the conclusion last month.

I see a lot of people saying they like 06NT more than 07NT why is that?
It seems to me the patches are bigger and the player selection seems the same, is it better rookies?

Boy this will be a tough one as opinions are all over the place. I'll be honest it may come down to availablity of the products and what is priced reasonably either this weekend or next. Seems like all prices are up right now which is making it tough to predict what will drop to "reasonable" levels.

I'd like to see maybe 2006 Topps Paradigm if others like it. How much would a case cost? A mix of Paradigm and NT (06-07) would be what I'd suggest, as those are products that do contain quality cards with some star rookies included.

LMK what others think.

Is there any reason we can't do just 07 NT. I know 08 NT is nice but the price is unreal right now. I would rather do 08 Leaf limited than 08 NT. We could get 20 boxes of LL for the price of the 4 08 NT. The quanitity of hits would be better and and the quality would be pretty close to what we could get in 08 NT. We would have less of a chance of a 1k card but mid range range hits would be more frequent because of the quantity of boxes.

Right now the best price of 08NT I see is $415. If that stays the case this weekend I can't see including that as that's a third of our budget. 2006 NT is at about $310 a box while 07NT is at $245. Hard to ignore a difference like that but it's also hard to predict what will go on sale this weekend or next. Prices have fluctuated far more this month than any other I can think of. Not sure why but it makes it nearly impossible to put a list out there and know if it's budgeted correctly. Even products like 07LL that you can usually get for $75 on the weekend is at $95. Triple threads is at $190 which is rediculous. I want to obviously get products that people want but also at a decent price point and I just don't see that in anything right now except for potentially 07NT (not great but "normal" pricing). I know people prefer NT to Exquisite but 07 is at about $340 and 06 is at $330.

With the pricing out there I like 07NT and maybe a different product for 08 that we haven't done yet...but that could change tomorrow if something goes on sale.
